Famed Swiss timepiece maker Parmigiani Fleurier has teamed up with high performance automobile manufacturer Bugatti for the release of their Veyron 16.4 Super Sport watch.
Constructed from 337 different pieces, this watch is a true standout. Parmigiani doesn’t even bother fiddling with making the straps; they outsource them from Hermes Paris. This timepiece is limited to only 30 in production and all 30 will be set in a 18k white gold case. Look for them at the top of 2011.
Another design feat, flipping the mechanical components of the watch onto a vertical axis allows drivers to keep focus on the dial. Though the concept seems simple, the difficulty of configuring the dial’s direction against the watch’s movement makes it a triumph of engineering. By developing a 90-degree time setting system and integrating a system of double pinions with bevel gearing, Parmigiani again dramatically transformed the possibilities for watch design.
